Etsy gift card guidelines 

You must have an Etsy account to purchase an Etsy gift card. Learn how to create an Etsy account.

When you purchase a gift card, follow these guidelines:

  • The "To" or "From" field must be no more than 25 characters in length
  • The message to the recipient must be no more than 5 lines in length
  • There can’t be any special characters or emojis in the text

You can’t purchase an Etsy gift card and check out from another shop in the same transaction. If you have other items in your cart, you can purchase them in a separate transaction.

If you're in the EEA, which comprises the EU, Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein, you may be asked to authenticate your payment after you select Place your order

To authenticate a payment, you'll need to respond to a prompt from your card issuer and provide additional information. Depending on your card issuer, this additional information may include a correct response to a question, a password, or a passcode.

Can I cancel a gift card?

An Etsy gift card can only be canceled and refunded if the balance hasn’t been used on a purchase. To request a gift card cancellation, go to Contact support at the bottom of this page and include your order number in your request.

How do I buy multiple gift cards?

After you add a gift card to your cart, select Add another gift card. You can repeat this as many times as you need. 

If you want to purchase more than $50,000 in gift cards, go to Contact support at the bottom of this page and we’ll be happy to help. For bulk orders over $50,000, we can provide gift cards in these formats:
